The New York Mets began a seven-game road trip on Friday night and came away with a fifth straight win, topping the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-4. 

New York (11-8) has won 11 of their last 14 games after starting the season 0-5. 

DJ Stewart homered and collected three RBI. Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5, including a go-ahead two-run home run in the seventh. Starling Marte drove in two runs with a single. Harrison Bader matched his career-high with four hits and an RBI, while Pete Alonso also plated a run. 

Sean Manaea tossed five innings of two-run ball. Reed Garrett came on in relief of the left-hander and allowed two unearned runs before Brooks Raley, Adam Ottavino, and Jake Diekman combined for 3.1 scoreless frames. 

Francisco Alvarez injured his thumb early in the game. Manager Carlos Mendoza told reporters he was sent for an MRI and is “pretty concerned.”

Box Score

The Mets go for their fifth straight series win on Saturday when they hand the ball to José Buttó. The first pitch is set for 4:05 p.m.
